House of the Week: $1.2 million for a Cabbagetown Victorian with a gallery-like vibe

House of the Week: $1.2 million for a Cabbagetown Victorian with a gallery-like vibe

ADDRESS: 1 Aberdeen Avenue

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Cabbagetown-South St. Jamestown

AGENTS: Daniel Bloch and Liora Tal, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd., Brokerage

PRICE: $1,199,000

THE PLACE: A four-bedroom Cabbagetown Victorian steps from bustling Parliament Street.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: The homeowner is an avid art collector. Sure, it may not all be to your taste (the bedroom full of nudes might make visiting in-laws a touch uncomfortable) but at least you’ll know you’re buying this home from a true aesthete and patron of the arts.

BIG SELLING POINT: A raft of attractive design details. Check out the wrought iron front gates, the stained glass windows in the living room and a master bedroom window bench that’s ideal for enjoying your morning coffee.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The hallway entrance feels a tad narrow and, at 15.92 feet wide, you can’t exactly play football indoors. Still, we’ll always take a slightly smaller home full of character over a bland McMansion.

BY THE NUMBERS: • $1,199,000 • $5,514.07 in taxes (2011) • 4 bedrooms • 3 bathrooms • 2 backyard seating areas • 1 parking space • 1 antique gilded fireplace
